    What position would you like to play and why ? You got -

    Seeker
    Keeper
    Beaters ( 2 for each team )
    Chasers ( 3 on each team )

    Personally I'd like to be a Chaser. Flying around the stadium while getting to smash other guys off their brooms mid air or literally smashing a Quaffle right into their face and sending teeth and blood spraying into the crows ! icon_biggrin.gif

    Yes, inner HP geek is having a little time out of the closet at the moment icon_redface.gif

    Yikes, I would probably be cheering, that sport looks wild. If I had to pick a position I would pick goal (keeper), that is the position I loved to play in ball hockey and soccer. I also like catching in baseball.

    LOL ! I make it sound brutal, but it's just how I always picture Quidditch to be in my mind when I read the books. IN the movies though they make it so damn slow and cleaned up for the kiddies that it makes it a joke to everyone who is just following the movies and not the books. The only decent match they ever filmed IMO is in POA in the rain.

    Keeper is a cool position too, especially if you have a strategic mind and good hand and eye co-ordination.

    Me too, at least I won't have to worry much about getting hit by other players if I'm a seeker. icon_biggrin.gificon_lol.gificon_razz.gificon_wink.gif

    i'd definitely be a beater; knowing full well how to deal with a club and ball i'd be more than happy to dismantle each player off their broom icon_twisted.gif

    If it was real quidditch, I'd play beater or seeker. I love hitting people with balls, lol.

    We have an "intramural" league here at FSU, it's really quite fun to play. I'm on Ravenclaw and alternate between beater and seeker. We play every Sunday right in front of Doak Campbell Stadium, you should come check us out if you're nearby!

    I would probably play Beater or Seeker. I suck at goal tending, and Chasers rarely cause a win.

    There are a few colleges with traveling teams, and they're working on getting the 'muggle' Quidditch thing going.

    LOL ! Seems quite a few guys here would love the chance to knock players off their brooms as much as I would icon_twisted.gif But I have seen the college Quidditch teams so it looks really cool and interesting and if I am ever in that neck of the woods in the states that I'd definately check it out.

    And, FYI, I would make all the players have to wear really tight rugby shorts as part of their uniforms and no robes.

    Oh, and this chick seems to have a REAL FLYING SNITCH !

    I'm going to be the different one and say keeper. Because I don't have as much as a chance getting hit with a bludger and messing up my pretty face, and the game kinda depends on then and I like that kind of attention!

    SEEKER! I would love to be the agile, quick acting fast flying person in that game and also would love if we all wore tight, white nylon running shorts and no shirts.

    LOL. Actually, I've always wished they would have gotten the older players to wear tighter pants that showed off their bums, with shorter robes to make sure they were shown in full view on the camera. Proper locker room scenes would have been a bonus too icon_biggrin.gif
